Architect Yener Torun Documents Contemporary Istanbul on Instagram

Neverwinter

"Istanbul is exotic and modern," says architect Yener Torun, who has spent the last year documenting Istanbul's most contemporary and brightly colored spaces on Instagram. "It is funny, because my photos of Istanbul do not really look like Istanbul. And that is what I exactly wanted to do - to show a different site of the city, a side that was never focused on."

Critiquing Istanbul's recent explosion of growth and "bad" architecture, Torun set out to discover the city's lesser known, brightly colored spaces that have had a positive influence on day-to-day life. Now with nearly 40,000 followers, his quest is proving to have an affect and is inspiring him to spread his explorations beyond Istanbul to Ankara, Bursa, Izmir and Kocaeli.
